1 Corinthians 10:12,13 (KJV)
12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Romans 13:12-14 (KJV)
12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

Lord God, with all the pain and sorrow in this life, it is much more bearable with You in it. Even with all the joy that comes with this life, it is less joyful when You aren't around. Surely, my life is empty when I am in sin and You are absent. Even when I feel overly righteous, life is just not the same until I finally humble myself. My life can even feel good while in sin, for a time, but like everything else, that time ends and all comes crashing down on me. So when it comes down to doing good, I know that there is only goodness when You are leading me. The same goes for repentance. I know that my life is being prolonged when You have rescued me from my addictions. When it comes to life, pride and the flesh is my downfall and I feel much better when You are helping me through it. I can easily say or do things that are hurtful if Your joy is not inside of me. For this God, I plead for You, this day, to never leave me, nor forsake me. Ever be in life. Guide my path and lead me in Your light. Help me make wise decisions that will be for my good. Even in times of sadness, raise me up again and give me peace. I am stronger during the good times and the bad when You have a hold of my life. I need You Lord. I am safe within Your arms. I love You. Amen.

Ecclesiastes 7:25-26 (KJV)
25 I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things , and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness:
26 And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her.

Galatians 5:16,17 (KJV)
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

Oh Lord, my heart sinks because of the wickedness in this world. I am so sick and tired of seeing such filth on TV that I just want to scream out. I've had enough of Satan's deceptions and no longer wish to quench the Spirit, God. You mean more to me than to be a part of this world and find pleasure in wickedness. Thank You for spelling out what is evil, that I may turn from it and warn others also. I am afraid of what TV and Movies have already done to people of the faith and wish that they would wake up to the wickedness that is in them. May we all no longer walk the fine line of what is right and wrong but go all in for You, Jesus. It is not worth justifying our sinful actions when these things only lead to our downfall come judgement day. Lord, shield our eyes. Help us turn away when we know what we are watching is wrong. Light a fire inside of us that when there is anything that is immoral in nature, that we run from it. I know that it is better to live a life for You then to live a life of fear and shame. You bring joy and happiness while this world only brings pain. I trust in You God. I love You. Amen.

Oh lord, humble us that we may take advice from others and You more seriously. When our sins come to light and people make mention of it, help us to not deny it but accept what we did was wrong. If there is counsel for our wrongs, may we be so able to listen to them. Help us to always have an open heart to our mistakes that when these circumstances arise that we will be ready to respond favorably. I know that many times I have said the wrong thing and caused a scene and I am sorry. Help me and everyone else to think of You before we speak. May our hearts and minds be filled with Your love for one another that we will treat others with that same love. And most importantly, help us to not be frustrated and to then shove it on other people. Calm our heart and cast out all anger. Give us peace in moments of distress. I trust in You Lord. I Love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, I am in awe at what You have done in my life. You have taken me from a life of sin and darkness and brought me into Your light. I was dead but You have changed me and there is new life. I once cared about my own good works but now I see that Your good works inside of me is what matters. I am incapable of living a life of faith but with You in my life, I can do all things. My faith is stronger when You are by my side. Thank You for accepting me in and leading me by the hand. Each time I need You, You are there. There is nobody as great as You, God. Surely, my future is bright, since You are in it. With the Holy Spirit inside of me, my eyes are opened to know You and to do Your Will. And my soul is alive. There is happiness that I have never experienced before. Without You, there is shame and sorrow but with You Lord, there is great joy and happiness that never ends. All my days, I needed a Savior and You finally came. I am so blessed. I trust in You Lord. I love You. Amen.

Ecclesiastes 6:3,4 (KJV)
3 If a man beget an hundred children, and live many years, so that the days of his years be many, and his soul be not filled with good, and also that he have no burial; I say, that an untimely birth is better than he.
4 For he cometh in with vanity, and departeth in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness.

Lord, I know that I have not always been truthful to You. I know that many times I promised to live a better life but failed miserable time after time. How foolish I had become, while trusting in myself to get better and not put my trust in You. I am so sorry for those times that I was not heartfelt in my desire for mercy. I only wanted Your forgiveness but then still live my own life. For that, I am deeply sorry. I no longer wish to ever act that way again. It is way too important to live a life pleasing to You than anything else. Your Words make that clear in my mind and heart. And now that You have come into my life, I am so happy. I am happier than I have ever been in my life. To be on Your path is a blessing and an honor. For this reason, I wish for Your presence to always be in my life. Help me to never fall so far that You cannot get me back up again. I do not wish to sin but life in Your light. Lord, take all the foolishness from my heart now, that I might endure till the end. Even till my dying breath, may it be praises to Your holy Name. For You are worthy. I love You Lord. I trust in You with my life. My heart is Yours. For You, I will do all things. Move me and I will go. Amen.
